Bray Days @ Exit Gallery

ASMSU Campus Entertainment presents Bray Days, a collection of ceramics by artists in residence at the Archie Bray Foundation. The exhibit will be showing in the Exit Gallery March 1 – 12. There will be a free public artist reception Wednesday, March 3rd, 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts is a public, nonprofit, educational institution founded in 1951 by brickmaker Archie Bray, who intended it to be “a place to make available for all who are seriously and sincerely interested in any of the branches of the ceramic arts, a fine place to work.” Its primary mission is to provide an environment that stimulates creative work in ceramics.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Bray in located three miles from downtown Helena, Montana, on the site of the former Western Clay Manufacturing Company. Set against the wooded foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the 26-acre former brickyard is internationally recognized as a gathering placed for emerging and established ceramic artists. The nearby mountains and brick factory ruins provide a backdrop for the creative environment; more important is the dynamic arts community created by the resident artists that come to the Bray to work, share experiences, and explore new ideas.

This year, the Ceramics Guild of MSU will be having a workshop featuring Nathan Craven and Gwendolyn Yoppolo. Hand-building ceramic installations and making ceramic vessels will be featured in the workshop. The workshop will be held in the ceramics room in Haynes Hall at the same time as the opening reception.

The Exit Gallery is located in Strand Union Building room 212, Montana State University, Bozeman. Hours are Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm.
